My Name is Eustace

Have we mentioned how much we love Benjamin Dunn? Dunn’s lyrics and melodies are hypnotic. You can’t help but get lost in the glory of grace and truth when listening to him and his Animal Orchestra.

My Name is Eustace tells the story of one man’s encounter with Grace. He says, “My name is Eustace and I’m not used to this Grace that makes death die. My name is Eustace, I’m not used to this Love that makes men alive.” Lyrics below.

You dig your claws into my chest
I know only you can undress
All these scales and all of my shame
You dip me into the waters of your grace
You clean me and kiss me on my face
Only you can dress me in love again

My name is Eustace
And I’m not used to this
Grace that makes death die
My name is Eustace
I’m not used to this
Love that makes men alive

You came in an unexpected face
Grace came in an unexpected place
You came and dressed me in love again
When you smile the winter meets it’s death
When you turn we have spring again
Only you can dress me in love again

My name is Eustace
And I’m not used to this
Grace that makes death die
My name is Eustace
I’m not used to this
Love that makes men alive

My name is…
